“Significant Developments” for CAD, CAM Functionality
High-Efficiency Roughing in New FeatureCAM Release
Solid Disassemble is a new modelprep function available in Mastercam X9 that takes an assembly and lays each body out in a single pane The associativity between solids and toolpaths has been improved according to the software developer such that when bodies are edited only the toolpaths directly affected by the change in the solid body are marked ldquodirtyrdquo
MachineWorlds new algorithm allows more flexible quality optimization in milling processes which enhances finishing surface accuracy and performance in terms CPU time and number of faces of the stock after simulation
NUMrsquos new axissharing facility for its Flexium 68 CNC system paves the way for very versatile machine tools with complex control requirements
Mechanical and electrical upgrades to this Landis centerless grinding machine included a new Flexium CNC system
GibbsCAM 2015 introduces a new Universal Kinematic Machine UKM engine and other new capabilities that the developer said simplifies programming make toolpath strategies ldquomore powerfulrdquo and simulate complex machining processes accurately
BobCADCAMrsquos Version 28 includes a Mill Turn module that supports complex setups including multiple turrets multiple spindles programmable tailstocks and steady rests and machines with B fiveaxis milling heads C and CY axis capabilities
